Welcome to Gloucestershire Against Badger Shooting (GABS)

GABS is a peaceful, law-abiding campaign group which is made up of volunteers who believe that culling badgers is an inhumane and ineffective means of controlling the transmission of Bovine TB in cattle.  We believe there is a better way.


We shall seek to communicate our views in a peaceful and respectful manner.  During culling periods, we focus our attention on walking in the countryside, on dedicated public footpaths, to search for the badgers who are wounded and require medical attention.  The Government's own Independent Expert Panel concluded that a significant percentage of badgers did not die within five minutes of the shot.  This was their test of humaneness and it failed.  We dedicate our efforts to the well-being of badgers.


We would be delighted to hear from you via this link if you share our mission to save  our badgers.
